    1 is OK, and I can see how a bolder stripe might suit Noodles. The thing is, it's so blue. And we have a problem with piling the navy on the navy.

    But I could live with 1.

    Isn't the 3rd one more close to a solid pretty much?

    It is a bit, and that's probably why I like it as a dress shirt. Even a pattern that resolves to solid at distance gives a little warmth and texture somehow. However, I picked it mainly because the blue wasn't navy.

    Ok. It's a split between 1 and 3

    He ordered a green pindot a couple of pages back. Burgundy is his next must-have, but a navy upgrade is also on the list.

    yeah right, got there now.

    For the shirts... hard to say. depends on what he has.
    I think shirts matter more in fit, collar, etc. and he is in a suit so i guess there's not that much to think about. Unlike ties that really stand out and make a difference.
    oh and i don't have a burgundy tie not sure i will. don't you think he needs a darker brown?

    I like shirt #1. Here is why...

    Equality in stripe size, not too much white, as I think is the problem with 3. If those blue stripes were evenly spaced on 3, I'd like it better, but still not as much as 1. I have a couple like number 1, in a similar shade, and also in lighter shades, in a few different weaves. They are more versatile than they look on a hanger.

    Edit- looked at it again. I see that the blue stripes in number 1 are slimmer than the white stripes. I would like it better if they weren't. In that case, it is a closer call between 1 and 3, but I still like the width of the stripes in 1 better.

    This might be the closest to what you're looking for.
